    Little E4500 overclocking help.

    Hey all.
    Ok, so thought would give this another try. Ran into the same issue again as my motherboard doesnt have a 1:1 divider thingey (Gigabyte G33m-DS2r). So at the moment, have the divider set at 3.33 and the CPU set at 240 x11, so giving me just shy of 2.7Ghz overclock.



    Ram is DDR2800, so that means I can push to a 400Mhz FSB before I start overclocking it or can I, as the Divider is 3.33 not 1:1 and by that logic at 400Mhz FSB theres 4.4Ghz on the table, which sounds insane and would have my 800 Ram running at 1600. Looking at the above piccy, I have put a 160Mhz overclock on the Ram already havent I?



    Read the sticky again and I must be missing something here. Help!

    Re: Little E4500 overclocking help.

    Your RAM is running at 800Mhz (Stock) as the FSB to RAM Ratio is 1:3.33

    240 x 3.33 = 799.2

    Re: Little E4500 overclocking help.

    I would run the RAM in a 1:2 ratio with the FSB so the RAM won't be overclocked even if you get the CPU to 3.2GHZ and use 25 iterations of IntelBurnTest to check for stability.

    Re: Little E4500 overclocking help.

    Cheers guys! Its my maths and stupidity, course its 3.33 x 240 DOH!

    No 1:2 option, Cat. Googled and checked Gigabyte site, they did release a BIOS update that gave 1:2.66 for the S2, but bugger all for the DS2R. Only options I have to play with are 3.33 and 4.00.

    Bit stuck now then.. hmmm

    Re: Little E4500 overclocking help.

    Am I missing something?

    With pure blind luck, found an official Gigabyte BIOS update that allegedy will add 2.66. So that should solve all my problems and get things in the direction of 300/3.3GHz. Just gotta try and find a floppy drive now.
